Build Status Coverage Status

An HTTP proxy that utilizes ACLs to control access to URIs.

NOTE: Consider this software alpha and extremely buggy and insecure. You probably shouldn't use this unless you're desparate for something like me. Pull requests are welcome and encouraged.

Requires Python>=3.6


usage: thfirewall [-h] [-a ADDRESS] [-p PORT] [-t TARGET] [-c CONFIG] [-d]

An HTTP proxy that utilizes ACLs to control access to URIs

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -a ADDRESS, --address ADDRESS
                        Port number to listen on
  -p PORT, --port PORT  Port number to listen on
  -t TARGET, --target TARGET
                        The target top level URL to forward requests
  -c CONFIG, --config CONFIG
                        The ACL config YAML file
  -d, --debug           Show debug messages

ACL Config Format

Here's an example ACL file. This is a whitelist. All URLs are evaluated from each path part at a time until one matches. So if someone requests /api/v0/get/QmASFD..., it will first see if /api is allowed, then /api/v0, etc...

public is the only named role. Every other one should be by IP address.

    - /api/v0/get
    - /api/v0/pin/ls
    - /api/v0/ping
